Kennedy White House killed U.S. ally

support new book showing who really assassinated JFK

09/23/2003 at 1:00 AM

Newly released tapes of President
Lyndon Johnson’s telephone conversations corroborate the central premise of an
explosive new book that promises to completely reshape the debate over who
killed President John F. Kennedy.

President Johnson
believed what Richard Nixon always suspected, writes Fox News White House
correspondent James Rosen in the Weekly Standard.

The surreptitious
recordings, released from the Johnson library in Austin, Texas, Feb. 28, offer
this bombshell missed by the press, Rosen writes: The Kennedy White House did
not merely tolerate or encourage the murder of its ally, South Vietnamese
President Ngo Dinh Diem, but organized and executed it.

Rosen’s findings provide
further evidence of the stunning, but convincing conclusion of co-authors Brad
O’Leary and L.E. Seymour in the upcoming WND Books release “Triangle of Death.”

Although the book has not
yet been released to bookstores, it has already shot up to 196 on the Amazon
chart just from initial pre-sales.

“Triangle” authors
present compelling evidence President Kennedy was
killed Nov. 22, 1963, as the result of a massive conspiracy between the
CIA-installed government of South Vietnam, the French global heroin syndicate
and the New Orleans Mafia.

The book is based on
recently declassified federal documents, material supplied by the KGB,
information from the Bonano crime family, documents obtained from a French
court and the only interview done with a French witness previously only
debriefed by the FBI and CIA.

In his Weekly Standard
story, Rosen writes Johnson left little doubt of his beliefs about who killed
Diem in a Feb. 1, 1966, call to Sen. Eugene McCarthy in which he complained
about the Kennedy administration and its left-wing allies in the Senate, who
had supported Kennedy’s entrance into the war but not Johnson’s continuance of

“They started on me with
Diem, you remember,” Johnson told McCarthy, recalling the words of the coup’s
proponents. “‘He was corrupt and he ought to be killed.’ So we killed him. We
all got together and got a goddamn bunch of thugs and assassinated him. Now,
we’ve really had no political stability [in South Vietnam] since then.”

Rosen notes that minutes
later, in a call to Gen. Maxwell D. Taylor, until recently America’s ambassador
to South Vietnam, Johnson expounded on his recollection, and the general echoed

“They started out and
said, ‘We got to kill Diem, because he’s no damn good. Let’s, let’s knock him
off.’ And we did,” Johnson told Taylor.

“Yeah, that’s where it
all started,” the general agreed.

“That’s exactly where it
started!” Johnson replied with obvious anger. “And I just pled with them at the
time, ‘Please, don’t do it.’ But that’s where it started. And they knocked him

Coup d’?tat

“Triangle of Death –
which includes details of a first-time-ever crime scene re-creation at Dealey
Plaza – shows how Kennedy planned and developed the coup d’?tat that resulted
in the political murders of the Catholic president, Diem, and his two brothers
just 22 days before his death. The U.S. State Department suppressed this
information for more than 30 years.

Evidence includes federal
documents that only recently have been declassified or released – exclusively
to the authors.

But more important than
any of that, the authors say, this book reveals an official CIA document “that
may well be the most shocking piece of evidence ever to arise from the enigma
surrounding Kennedy’s murder.”

The document affirms that
an international assassin had been captured by U.S. authorities in Dallas less
than 48 hours after Kennedy was shot, and that instead of arresting him, those
same U.S. authorities secretly flew the assassin out of the country to freedom.

The authors also reveal a
Mafia chieftain, who employed Jack Ruby and Lee Harvey Oswald’s uncle,
confessed to federal officers he had been directly involved in Kennedy’s

In addition, O’Leary and
Seymour recount how the United States and the Soviet Union both went on high
military alert immediately after Kennedy’s death, bringing the world to the
brink of nuclear annihilation.

Other facts uncovered by
the book include:

  • Mafia
    Godfather Joe Bonano saw Jack Ruby gun down Oswald and knew immediately
    that it was a mob hit. Bonano offered to testify before the Warren
    Commission but never was called.

  • In 1963,
    Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev ordered the KGB to find President
    Kennedy’s killer. The FBI never asked for the KGB’s report.

  • Lyndon
    Johnson and Hubert Humphrey secretly identified who they believed ordered
    JFK’s assassination.

  • Robert
    Kennedy’s biographer finally admitted RFK, the president’s brother and
    then-attorney general, prevented testimony of certain witnesses to the
    Warren Commission.

  • Kennedy’s
    brain – a crucial piece of forensic evidence – was stolen by a U.S. Navy
    admiral, on Robert Kennedy’s orders.

  • Robert
    Kennedy didn’t want his brother’s death investigated because the
    investigation might uncover the fact that he, along with the president
    and the rest of the Kennedy White House, had drawn up operational plans
    to assassinate Fidel Castro after the Bay of Pigs invasion.

Two chapters of this book
have already been used to make two different television specials – one on PBS
and the other on the History Channel.

Co-author O’Leary,
involved in politics for more than 25 years, publishes the O’Leary Report, one
of the most influential publications in American politics. His clients have
included more than 60 political and public figures, including Sen. John Tower
and Texas Gov. John Connolly, who rode in Kennedy’s car when he was shot.
O’Leary also hosted his own radio show on NBC for seven years and was a
contributing columnist for USA Today Weekend magazine. He currently is
president of Associated Television News in Los Angeles.

O’Leary is available for
media interviews through Shirley and Banister and Associates at (703) 739-5920.

His co-author, Seymour,
is a free-lance writer and author of 15 novels, including “The Stickmen” and
“Operator ‘B’.”

False claims?

O’Leary and Seymour note
investigative bodies of the U.S. government have made numerous claims, including
that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone assassin; that only two shots hit their
target, that the bullets fired that day all came from the sixth floor of the
Texas Schoolbook Depository; and that Kennedy was killed because he was
preparing to pull all U.S. troops out of Vietnam.

The authors insist all of
these claims are false and are designed to placate the American public and
distract them from the facts of the case.

They acknowledge most
readers will find it difficult to accept that Kennedy authorized the overthrow
of the Catholic government of South Vietnam and the assassination of Diem,
South Vietnam’s democratically elected, constitutional president.

After all, Kennedy had
generously pledged American troops, military equipment and tax dollars to protect
South Vietnam from the threat of communism.

But the authors of
“Triangle of Death” provide evidence Kennedy personally asked a high-ranking
U.S. military officer to assassinate Diem, who was a political
disaster-in-the-making for the president.

The events were set into
motion when a Buddhist leader named Quang Duc calmly sat down in a Saigon
street June 11, 1963, soaked himself with gasoline, lit a match and burned
himself to death.

The news swept through
the world, and when the full extent of Diem’s brutality toward the Buddhists
became apparent, America immediately began to ask itself the obvious questions,
O’Leary and Seymour write: “Why is the U.S. supporting a foreign government
that engages in religious persecution? Why is President Kennedy sending U.S.
military personnel to help the government of a man who puts his own people into
concentration camps?”

The authors point out:
“Until then, America believed the increasing number of U.S. men and women being
sent to South Vietnam – close to 15,000 by June 1963 – and the
$1.2-million-per-day aid package were to help the South Vietnamese fight the
deadly Vietcong. But literally overnight, the U.S. was internationally
perceived as a bunch of buffoons who were propping up a tyrant.”

With the next U.S.
presidential election just over a year away, they write, “Kennedy was
infuriated; moreover, he and his political consultants were scared.”

People “already believed
that Kennedy had stolen the election, based on suspicious vote-counting in
Illinois; a Catholic U.S. president supporting a Catholic fanatic who was
intent on persecuting another religious group would provide them with all the
ammunition they needed in November of ’64.”

The authors contend they
have irrefutable evidence the Kennedy White House supported a coup d’etat
against the government of South Vietnam and the assassination of President

“More than anything
else,” they write, “this was the rich ground in which a counter-conspiracy was
planted, the conspiracy that led to President Kennedy’s own assassination.”
